1200 FREE STUFFED BACKPACKS & FREE CARNIVAL
Tacoma Christian Center's annual backpack giveaway passes out 1200stuffed backpacks every year. The big FREE carnival entertains young and old. Mixed in with the fun and games are great vendors who offer health booths including medical screenings, sports physicals, dental exams, & vision screenings. It's hard to tell which is a learning or a gaming tent with all of the goodies being handed out at each booth. It's easy to see why this event has been going strong since 2001. Backpacks are filled with traditional age appropriate school supplies. TCC won the 2018 City of Destiny Award for their year round community work supporting families.
